i think the important part here is that if you are using UDP for 
transmission then you should **not** use [slipdec] at all.

[slipdec] is *only* useful for TCP/IP transmissions.

if you use TCP/IP for transmitting OSC, things are a bit more muddled as 
the protocol is not fully defined.
SLIP-encoding was relatively recently introduced and only *recommended* 
(as opposed to *enforced*) in the OSC-specifications.
older implementations just added the packet-size to the beginning of 
each OSC-message/bundle (which was not very robust).

so if you use TCP/IP, you must know which packet-delimiting you are using.
